Turkish demonstrators burning Chinese flag

Introduction: This program underscores key aspects of the highly complex dynamics surrounding the 9/11 attacks and subsequent events.

Once again, we visit the subject of the Earth Island or “World Island” as it is sometimes called. Stretching from the Straits of Gibraltar, all across Europe, most of the Middle East, Eurasia, Russia, China and India, that stretch of land: comprises most of the world’s land mass; contains most of the world’s population and most of the world’s natural resources (including oil and natural gas.) Geopoliticians have long seen controlling that land mass as the key to world domination.  The population that occupies the middle of that stretch of geography is largely Muslim.

Utilizing that Muslim population to control the resources of the Earth Island is a strategem that has been in effect in the West for a century.

After reviewing the presence of Chechen fighters in Ukraine, we shift Eastward to examine operations undertaken against China. (We wonder if the recent Russian build up of air force infrastructure in Syria may have something to do with the formerly Syrian-based Chechen fighters with ISIS decamping to Ukraine?

We are now seeing the Uighurs, a TurkophoneMuslim group in the petroleum and natural-resources-rich Xinjiang province of China, receiving support from the Pan-Turkist/fascist  National Action Party and its youth wingthe Grey Wolves.

As Russia is being boxed in by renascent Ukrainian fascism in the East and Caucasian Islamist terror in the Caucasus, we must wonder if the NAP/Grey Wolf PR offensive against China and on behalf of the Uighurs is part of an ongoing NATO/U.S./Underground Reich effort against the core of the Earth Island, Russia and China.

Next, the program fleshes out information about the separatist movement in Xinjiang province, China. Note that both Islamist and non-theocratic Pan-Turkist elements are involved in this movement. Elements of the Uighur/Xinjiang separatist movement have strong connections to Muslim Brotherhood-connected terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda.

Dalai Lama and his associate, SS war criminal Bruno Beger

The broadcast reviews the fact that the Dalai Lama has collaborated with Islamists from among the Uighur population of Xinjiang province of China. (The Uighurs refer to Xinjiang as East or Eastern Turkestan.) With Xinjiang province being rich in petroleum, the Uighurs have had little trouble obtaining support from foreign intelligence services. For additional information about Uighur involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda milieu, see FTR#348 as well as FTR#549It should be noted that we are a long way from dealing with “Buddhists” here!! The Dalai Lama’s milieu is part of a larger Underground Reich “virtual state.” It is also important to bear in mind that the milieu of which the Dalai Lama is a part appears to focus on Central Asia—that part of the “Earth Island” seen by geopoliticians as key to controlling that land mass and, as a consequence, the world. Note that the Uighurs are counted by the Pan-Turkists as among the “outside Turks” to be included in a “Greater Turkestan”.

We reiterate the role that Islamists associated with the Muslim Brotherhood play in the multinational corporate globalization movement. They are working in a fashion that diminishes national control and regulation and accentuates laissez-faire market dynamics. (This was set forth at some length in FTR #862, among other programs.)

Examining the use of two different types of what Peter Levenda termed “weaponized religion,” we highlight Pan-Turkist/Uighur activist Erkin Altepkin’s links to: the Dalai Lama, elements of Western intelligence, the UNPO of Karl Von Habsburg and Islamists/Pan-Turkists associated with Muslim Brotherhood terrorist offshoots.

For those who struggle with understanding the Altepkin/Dalai Lama/fascist association, we review some of our discussion with Peter Levenda about the Dalai Lama, his association with elements of the SS and the Third Reich AFTER the war and his work on behalf of Western intelligence (CIA in particular.) For more about the Dalai Lama’s sinister associations, see FTR #547.)

Stephan Bandera

Noting Altepkin and the Dalai Lama’s links to the UNPO, we review Karl Von Habsburg’s leadership role in that organization. Active in Ukraine as well, Karl Von Habsburg is carrying on the dynastic tradition, with the Austro-Hungarian Empire having established the political template for the OUN/B fascists of Galicia (Western Ukraine.)

With Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamists and Pan-Turkists working with the Dalai Lama, elements of CIA and the Habsburg milieu, we are in a position to see how highly diverse, seemingly contradictory political aggregates are being deployed in concert in what we call “The Earth Island Boogie.”

We conclude by noting that Paula Dobriansky–deeply involved with the OUN/B milieu of her father Lev–ran the Tibet desk for George W. Bush’s State Department (after having been on Ronald Reagan’s National Security Council.)

Program Highlights Include:

  • Review of Otto Von Habsburg’s close relationship with Jaroslav Stetsko, OUN/B head of Ukraine’s World War II collaborationist government.
  • Analysis of functional operational similarities between Adolph Hitler and the Dalai Lama.
  • Review of the development of “weaponized Islam,” in play along with elements of “weaponized Buddhism” in the ongoing “Earth Island Boogie.”

1. Two different types of fascist cadres are operating in tandem in Ukraine–in addition to the OUN/B heirs such as the Pravy Sektor formations, Chechen fighters (almost certainly allied with some element of Muslim Brotherhood) are now fighting alongside them and under the Pravy Sektor administrative command.

The Chechen formations are described as “brothers” of the Islamic State.

The Boston Marathon bombing appears to have been blowback from a covert operation backing jihadists in the Caucasus.

“Ukraine Merges Nazis and Islamists” by Robert Parry; Consortium News; 7/7/2015.

In a curiously upbeat account, The New York Times reports that Islamic militants have joined with Ukraine’s far-right and neo-Nazi battalions to fight ethnic Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine. It appears that no combination of violent extremists is too wretched to celebrate as long as they’re killing Russ-kies.

The article by Andrew E. Kramer reports that there are now three Islamic battalions “deployed to the hottest zones,” such as around the port city of Mariupol. One of the battalions is headed by a former Chechen warlord who goes by the name “Muslim,” Kramer wrote, adding:

“The Chechen commands the Sheikh Mansur group, named for an 18th-century Chechen resistance figure. It is subordinate to the nationalist Right Sector, a Ukrainian militia. … Right Sector … formed during last year’s street protests in Kiev from a half-dozen fringe Ukrainian nationalist groups like White Hammer and the Trident of Stepan Bandera.

“Another, the Azov group, is openly neo-Nazi, using the ‘Wolf’s Hook’ symbol associated with the [Nazi] SS. Without addressing the issue of the Nazi symbol, the Chechen said he got along well with the nationalists because, like him, they loved their homeland and hated the Russians.”

As casually as Kramer acknowledges the key front-line role of neo-Nazis and white supremacists fighting for the U.S.-backed Kiev regime, his article does mark an aberration for the Times and the rest of the mainstream U.S. news media, which usually dismiss any mention of this Nazi taint as “Russian propaganda.” . . .

. . . . Now, the Kiev regime has added to those “forces of civilization” — resisting the Russ-kie barbarians — Islamic militants with ties to terrorism. Last September, Marcin Mamon, a reporter for the Intercept, reached a vanguard group of these Islamic fighters in Ukraine through the help of his “contact in Turkey with the Islamic State [who] had told me his ‘brothers’ were in Ukraine, and I could trust them.”

The new Times article avoids delving into the terrorist connections of these Islamist fighters. . . .

2. We present more about the Chechen/Islamic State fighters in Ukraine. Note that, as discussed in FTR #830, the Islamic State appears to be another branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Note, also, that Georgia also was harboring Islamist fighters campaigning against Russia. We highlighted this in FTR #710.

The Daily Beast has a new piece on the Chechen Jihadists fight­ing in Ukraine after fight­ing for ISIS and how, with talk of mak­ing Right Sec­tor part of the SBU, there’s grow­ing spec­u­la­tion that a Chechen ‘vol­un­teer bat­tal­ion’ is just a mat­ter of time:

“Chechen Jihadists Join Ukraine’s Fight­ers” by Anna Nemtsova  ; The Daily Beast; 9/04/2015.

Chechen Jihadis Leave Syria, Join the Fight in Ukraine

A bat­tal­ion of fight­ers from the Cau­ca­sus is deployed on Kiev’s side in the Ukraine war. But their pres­ence may do more harm than good.

Just an hour’s drive from this city under siege, at an old resort on the Azov Sea that’s now a mil­i­tary base, mil­i­tants from Chechnya—veterans of the jihad in their own lands and, more recently, in Syria—now serve in what’s called the Sheikh Mansur Bat­tal­ion. Some of them say they have trained, at least, in the Mid­dle East with fight­ers for the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS.

Among the irreg­u­lar forces who’ve enlisted in the fight against the Russian-backed sep­a­ratists in the Don­bas region of east­ern Ukraine, few are more con­tro­ver­sial or more dan­ger­ous to the cred­i­bil­ity of the cause they say they want to serve. Russ­ian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin would love to por­tray the fight­ers he sup­ports as cru­saders against wild-eyed jihadists rather than the gov­ern­ment in Ukraine that wants to inte­grate the coun­try more closely with West­ern Europe.

Yet many Ukrain­ian patri­ots, des­per­ate to gain an edge in the fight against the Russian-backed forces, are will­ing to accept the Chechen mil­i­tants on their side.

Over the past year, dozens of Chechen fight­ers have come across Ukraine’s bor­der, some legally, some ille­gally, and con­nected in Don­bas with the Right Sec­tor, a far-right-wing mili­tia. The two groups, with two bat­tal­ions, have lit­tle in com­mon, but they share an enemy and they share this base.

The Daily Beast spoke with the Chechen mil­i­tants about their pos­si­ble sup­port for the Islamic State and its affil­i­ate in the North­ern Cau­ca­sus region of Rus­sia, which is now called the Islamic State Cau­ca­sus Emi­rate and is labeled a ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion by both Rus­sia and the United States.

The Chechen fight­ers said they were moti­vated by a chance to fight in Ukraine against the Rus­sians, whom they called “occu­piers of our coun­try, Ichk­eriya,” another term for Chechnya.

Indeed, they were upset that Ukrain­ian author­i­ties did not allow more Chechen mil­i­tants to move to Ukraine from the Mid­dle East and the moun­tains of the Cau­ca­sus. The Sheikh Mansur Bat­tal­ion, founded in Ukraine in Octo­ber 2014, “needs re-enforcement,” they said.

The man the Chechens defer to as their “emir,” or leader, is called “Mus­lim,” a com­mon fore­name in the Cau­ca­sus. He talked about how he per­son­ally crossed the Ukrain­ian bor­der last year: “It took me two days to walk across Ukraine’s bor­der, and the Ukrain­ian bor­der con­trol shot at me,” he said. He lives on this mil­i­tary base here openly enough but is frus­trated that more of his recruits can’t get through. “Three of our guys came here from Syria, 15 more are wait­ing in Turkey,” he told The Daily Beast. “They want to take my path, join our bat­tal­ion here right now, but the Ukrain­ian bor­der patrol is not let­ting them in.”

Mus­lim pulled out a piece of paper with a name of another Chechen head­ing to join the bat­tal­ion. The hand­writ­ten note said that Amayev Khavadzhi was detained on Sep­tem­ber 4, 2014, in Greece and now could be deported to Rus­sia. (Khayadzhi’s lawyer in Greece told The Daily Beast on the phone that there was a chance that his defen­dant would be trans­ferred to his fam­ily in France instead.)

“Two more of our friends have been detained, and are threat­ened with depor­ta­tion to Rus­sia, where they get locked up for life or Kady­rov kills them,” Mus­lim told The Daily Beast, refer­ring to the pro-Putin strong­man of Chech­nya, Ramzan Kadyrov.

The com­man­der pointed at a young bearded mil­i­tant next to him: “Mansur came here from Syria,” Mus­lim said. “He used ISIS as a train­ing base to improve his fight­ing skills.” Mansur stretched out his right hand, which was dis­fig­ured, he said, by a bul­let wound. Two more bul­lets were still stuck in his back, he said.

“No pho­tographs,” Mansur shook his head when a jour­nal­ist tried to take his pic­ture. Not even of his hand, not even from the back: “My reli­gion does not allow that.”

Mansur said he did not have to run across the bor­der under a hail of of bul­lets like Mus­lim. “We man­aged to reach an agree­ment with the Ukraini­ans,” he said.

The arrival of pro-Ukrainian Chechen fight­ers from abroad helped relieve some of the immi­gra­tion prob­lems of Chechens already liv­ing in Ukraine, the mil­i­tants explained.

Kady­rov had sent some of his Chechens to fight on the Russ­ian side of the con­flict last year, said Mus­lim, and as a result “there was a tem­po­rary dan­ger that Chechen fam­i­lies might be deported from Ukraine… But as soon as we started com­ing here last August, no Chechen in Ukraine had rea­sons to complain.”

Were for­mer fight­ers com­ing to Ukraine from Syria because they were dis­ap­pointed (or appalled) by the ide­ol­ogy of ISIS?

“We have been fight­ing against Rus­sia for over 400 years; today they [the Rus­sians] blow up and burn our broth­ers alive, together with chil­dren, so here in Ukraine we con­tinue to fight our war,” the com­man­der said. Many in Ukraine remem­bered the Chechen war of the mid-1990s as a war for inde­pen­dence, which briefly was given, then taken away.

Since then the war in the Cau­ca­sus has mor­phed into ter­ror­ism, killing about 1,000 civil­ians, many of them chil­dren, in a series of ter­ror attacks. And what­ever the com­mon enemy, that poses a seri­ous prob­lem for Kiev if it embraces such fighters.

“The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment should be aware that Islamic rad­i­cals fight against democ­racy,” says Var­vara Pakhomenko, an expert at the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group. “Today they unite with Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists against Rus­sians, tomor­row they will be fight­ing against liberals.”

Pakhomenko says some­thing sim­i­lar hap­pened in Geor­gia in 2012 when the gov­ern­ment there found itself accused of coop­er­a­tion with Islamic rad­i­cals from Europe, Chech­nya, and the Pankisi Gorge, an eth­nic Chechen region of Georgia.

For inter­na­tional observers cov­er­ing ter­ror­ism in Rus­sia and Cau­ca­sus in the past 15 years, the pres­ence of Islamic rad­i­cals in Ukraine sounds “dis­as­trous,” mon­i­tors from the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group told The Daily Beast.

But many ordi­nary Ukraini­ans and offi­cials in Mar­i­upol sup­port the idea of retain­ing more Chechen mili­tia fight­ers. “They are fear­less fight­ers, ready to die for us, we love them, any­body who would pro­tect us from death,” said Galina Odnorog, a vol­un­teer sup­ply­ing equip­ment, water, food, and other items to bat­tal­ions told The Daily Beast. The pre­vi­ous night Ukrain­ian forces reported six dead Ukrain­ian sol­diers and over a dozen wounded.

“ISIS, terrorists—anybody is bet­ter than our lame lead­ers,” says local leg­isla­tive coun­cil deputy Alexan­der Yaroshenko. “I feel more com­fort­able around Mus­lim and his guys than with our mayor or governor.”

The Right Sec­tor bat­tal­ion that coop­er­ates with the Chechen mil­i­tants is a law unto itself, often out of con­trol, and tend­ing to incor­po­rate any­one it wants into its ranks. In July two peo­ple were killed and eight wounded in a gun and grenade bat­tle between police and Right Sec­tor mili­tia in west­ern Ukraine. On Mon­day, Right Sec­tor mil­i­tants trig­gered street bat­tles in the cen­ter of Kiev that left three police­men dead and over 130 wounded.

Yet the gov­ern­ment in Kiev has been con­sid­er­ing the trans­fer of the Right Sec­tor into a spe­cial unit of the SBU, Ukraine’s secu­rity ser­vice, which has made many peo­ple won­der whether the Chechen mili­tia will be join­ing the gov­ern­ment units as well. So far, nei­ther the Right Sec­tor bat­tal­ion nor the Chechen bat­tal­ion have been reg­is­tered with offi­cial forces.

In Ukraine, which is los­ing dozens of sol­diers and civil­ians every week, many things could spin out of con­trol but “it would be unimag­in­able to allow for­mer or cur­rent ISIS fight­ers to join any government-controlled or –spon­sored mil­i­tary unit,” says Paul Quinn-Judge, senior adviser for Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group in Rus­sia and Ukraine. “It would be polit­i­cally dis­as­trous for the Poroshenko admin­is­tra­tion: No West­ern gov­ern­ment in its right mind would accept this, and it would be an enor­mous pro­pa­ganda gift for the Krem­lin. The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment would be bet­ter served by pub­li­ciz­ing their deci­sions to turn ISIS vets back at the border.”

The Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment should be aware that Islamic rad­i­cals fight against democ­racy,” says Var­vara Pakhomenko, an expert at the Inter­na­tional Cri­sis Group. “Today they unite with Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists against Rus­sians, tomor­row they will be fight­ing against liberals.”

3. Once again, we visit the subject of the Earth Island or “World Island” as it is sometimes called. Stretching from the Straits of Gibraltar, all across Europe, most of the Middle East, Eurasia, Russia, China and India, that stretch of land: comprises most of the world’s land mass; contains most of the world’s population and most of the world’s natural resources (including oil and natural gas.) Geopoliticians have long seen controlling that land mass as the key to world domination.  The population that occupies the middle of that stretch of geography is largely Muslim.

Utilizing that Muslim population to control the resources of the Earth Island is a strategem that has been in effect in the West for a century.

Now, we are seeing the Uighurs, a TurkophoneMuslim group in the petroleum and natural-resources-rich Xinjiang province of China, receiving support from the Pan-Turkist/fascist  National Action Party and its youth wingthe Grey Wolves.

As Russia is being boxed in by renascent Ukrainian fascism in the East and Caucasian Islamist terror in the Caucasus, we must wonder if the NAP/Grey Wolf PR offensive against China and on behalf of the Uighurs is part of an ongoing NATO/U.S./Underground Reich effort against the core of the Earth Island, Russia and China.

Are we seeing an effort at breaking those countries apart?  Are the Islamist and Pan-Turkist movements aligning in furthering this goal?

“Anti-China Sentiment Is Suddenly Sweeping Over Turkey” by Barbara Tasch [Business Insider]; Yahoo News; 7/21/2015.

Protests. Burnt flags. Attacks on tourists and restaurants. Rampant racism on social media.

Anti-China sentiment has been reaching new heights in Turkey over the last few weeks, as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to make an official state visit to China later this month.

It started at the beginning of July, when a Chinese restaurant in Istanbul was attacked by five men with sticks and stones.

“We do not want a Chinese restaurant here, get out of our town!” the men were heard saying, according to Al-Monitor.

A few days later, a Korean tourist mistaken to be Chinese was attacked by a group of ultra-nationalists in the capital. On the same day in Balikesir, protesters hung an effigy of Mao Zedong. And a few days later, the protests spread again to Istanbul, where Chinese tourists were attacked and harassed, according to CNN.

The protests gathered momentum a few weeks ago, when reports emerged that Uighurs — who share ethnicity and have close cultural ties with Turkish Muslims — who were living in western regions of China had allegedly not been allowed to fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Those allegations have been denied by the Chinese government. Uighurs make up around 45% of the Xinjiang autonomous region of China.

On July 9, a group of about 200 men who are believed to be part of the East Turkestan Solidarity Group attacked the Thai embassy in Istanbul with rocks and wooden planks. The attack followed the repatriation of over 100 Uighurs back to China by the Thai government.

In a recent interview, Devlety Bahceli, chairman of the far-right Nationalist Action Party (MHP) in Turkey, whose members have been accused of assaulting tourists, said they are “sensitive to injustices in China.”

“Our nationalist youth is sensitive to injustices in China. They should have the freedom to exercise their democratic rights. These are young kids. They may have been provoked. Plus, how are you going to differentiate between Korean and Chinese? They both have slanted eyes. Does it really matter?” he said, according to Al-Monitor

Those racist comments caused uproar in national and international media. And following growing social pressure, Nationalist Action Party members told Al-Monitor that they view all tourists as their guests. The head of the Grey Wolves, the youth wing of the MHP in Istanbul, told the BBC that the attacks took place between protesters and the police — and that no tourists were harmed.

 “The safety of every tourist coming to our country is our responsibility. We can’t tolerate any sort of violence,” he said.

Amid the multiplying attacks, the Chinese embassy issued a travel warning to its citizens and told them to avoid going out alone, getting close to protests, or taking pictures of them. The Chinese Philharmonic Orchestra also canceled its August concert in Istanbul, and local police announced it would provide extra security for an exhibition by a Chinese artist. . . . .

4. Next, the program fleshes out information about the separatist movement in Xinjiang province, China. Note that both Islamist and non-theocratic Pan-Turkist elements are involved in this movement.

Dollars for Terror: The United States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; Copyright 2000; Algora Press [SC]; ISBN 1-822941-06-6; p. 10.

“China has not been spared. Xinjiang (southern China), has a population that is 55% Uighur (a Turkophone Sunni ethnic group); it has been confronted with Islamist violence since the beginning of the 1990’s. Created in 1955, Xinjiang (which means ‘new territory’) is one of the five autonomous areas of China and is the largest administrative unit of the country. The area is highly strategic at the geopolitical level – Chinese nuclear tests and rocket launches take place on the Lop Nor test grounds – as well as from an economic standpoint, since it abounds in natural wealth (oil, gas, uranium, gold, etc.). Against this backdrop, attacks have proliferated by independence-seeking cliques, all preaching ‘Holy War.'”

5. “Some are acting in the name of Turkish identity, while others are fighting in the name of Allah (especially in the southern part of the region). As in the rest of Central Asia, in Xinjiang we are witnessing the rising influence of Wahhabi groups and the increasing proselytism of preachers from Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Traditionally allied with popular China, Pakistan is nevertheless trying to extend its influence to this part of China, using the Islamists as it did in Afghanistan. For this reason Beijing closed the road from Karakorum, connecting Xinjiang to Pakistan, between 1992 and 1995. Since 1996, the frequency of the incidents has skyrocketed. In February 1997, riots exploded in Yining (a town of 300,000 inhabitants located to the west of Urumqi, near the Kazakh border). This violence caused ten deaths, according to Chinese authorities, and the Uighurs have counted more than a hundred victims.”

(Idem.)

6. “Every week in 1998 saw a bombing or an attack with automatic weapons. The region’s hotels, airports and railway stations are in a constant state of alert. In April, Chinese authorities in the vicinity of Yining seized 700 cases of ammunition from Kazakhstan. In September, the Secretary of the Xinjiang Communist Party declared that ’19 training camps, in which specialists returning from Afghanistan educate young recruits in the techniques of terrorism, with the assistance of the Taleban,’ were neutralized. In January 1999, 29 activists implicated in the February 1997 riots were arrested. On February 12, violent clashes between the police and groups of Uighur militants wounded several dozen people in Urumqi. Two hundred people were arrested. In early March, 10,000 additional soldiers arrived at Yining to beef up security, while in Beijing, the Uighur Islamist organizations took credit for several bomb attacks.”

(Ibid.; pp. 10-11.)

7. “This Asian test-bed is supporting the emergence of a new type of radicalism. Sunni-ite and ideologically conservative, it is supranational in its recruitment and in its ideology. It does not emanate out of scissions in the great Islamists organizations, but from a radicalization of the Afghan Talebans, from their sanctuaries and their ties with small terrorist and mafia groups, marginalized and radicalized by repression (as in Egypt and Algeria), in a context of economic and financial globalization, as well as from the circulation of militants who have lost their territories. The principal characteristic of these networks (except in Central Asia and Egypt) is that they recruit, establish their bases, and act at the margins of the Arab-Muslim world. In addition to the Egyptians, Pakistanis, Sudanese, Yemenites, and Filipinos, recently there has been a wave of immigration to Great Britain and the United States. Operations take place in Egypt, certainly, in Algeria and Central Asia, but also in the east and the south of Africa, in Yemen, Bangladesh, New York, etc. The favorite ‘holy wars’ are Kashmir, Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Caucasus and, now, China.”

(Ibid.; p. 11.)

8. Note the role that Islamists play in the multinational corporate globalization movement. They are working in a fashion that diminishes national control and regulation and accentuates laissez-faire market dynamics. (“Liberalism” in the context presented here means “free-market” rather than traditional American political liberalism.)

“Taking advantage of economic liberalization, many former chiefs of the ‘holy war’ have now transmuted into businessmen. They make up an ‘Islamo-business’ world that has colonies in various sectors: Islamic financial institutions, Islamic garment industries, humanitarian and benevolent organizations, private schools, and so on. As political scientist Olivier Roy says, ‘Today’s Islamic actors are working for liberalism and against state control.’ They represent a globalization of Islam, deterritorialized, in an approach that has been uncoupled from the Middle East. A striking Westernization of Islamism is taking place or, more precisely, of the traditionally infra-state networks; tribes, Koran schools, etc. are linking up with worldwide networks that function in an extremely modern way and outside the control of any State authority. This evolution results from a history that began long ago…”

(Idem.)

9. The broadcast reviews the fact that the Dalai Lama has collaborated with Islamists from among the Uighur population of Xinjiang province of China. (The Uighurs refer to Xinjiang as East or Eastern Turkestan.) With Xinjiang province being rich in petroleum, the Uighurs have had little trouble obtaining support from foreign intelligence services. For additional information about Uighur involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda milieu, see FTR#348 as well as FTR#549It should be noted that we are a long way from dealing with “Buddhists” here!! The Dalai Lama’s milieu is part of a larger Underground Reich “virtual state.” It is also important to bear in mind that the milieu of which the Dalai Lama is a part appears to focus on Central Asia—that part of the “Earth Island” seen by geopoliticians as key to controlling that land mass and, as a consequence, the world. Note that the Uighurs are counted by the Pan-Turkists as among the “outside Turks” to be included in a “Greater Turkestan”.

“US & Terrorism in Xinjiang” by B. Raman; From the website of the South Asia Analysis Group [an Indian intelligence/national security think tank]; 7/2002.

“India should have reasons to be concerned over the Dalai Lama’s hobnobbing with the pan- Islamic elements in Xinjiang. One cannot avoid suspecting that the influence of these elements must have been behind his participation in a conference organized in Chennai last year by some elements, which have been acting as apologists for Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the Pakistani military dictator, which was attended by a representative of the Huryiat of J&K and a large number of Pakistanis, some of them retired Pakistani military officers. The Dalai Lama’s set-up subsequently denied or played down some of the controversial remarks attributed to him at the conference. The Government of India should consider conveying to the Dalai Lama its unhappiness and concern over his association with pan-Islamic elements in Xinjiang.”

10. Note that the U.S. has maintained a double standard on Islamist and separatist terrorist organizations. Those perceived as “purely indigenous” are not classified as terrorist, and may be receiving assistance from elements of the intelligence community that are at least nominally American. It is Mr. Emory’s view that this element of the intelligence community is associated with the petroleum industry and, at a more profound level, the Underground Reich. It appears that this same element (or related elements) is at the epicenter of the drug-trafficking milieu within U.S. intelligence. For listeners who might find this difficult to understand, consider the situation vis a vis drug-trafficking. Some elements of U.S. intelligence are complicit in the drug trafficking, while other elements (in conjunction with law enforcement) are sincerely active in opposing it. Not only are the terrorist and drug-trafficking situations analogous, but, again, the drug-trafficking elements are associated with the terrorist elements. As researcher Peter Dale Scott has illustrated in his work [Drugs, Oil and War], the terror/drug element is closely associated with the petroleum industry. This element of the intelligence community may well be part of the “Safari Club” milieu.

More on the Uighur involvement with Al Qaeda:

“10. The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and the Abu Sayyaf of the southern Philippines have been designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations under the US law of 1996, but not the Eastern Turkestan Islamic Party, though all the three are members of Osama bin Laden’s International Islamic Front For Jehad Against the USA and Israel. In initiating action, either for designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization or for action under the UN Security Council Resolution No, 1373 in respect of bank accounts, the US and the European Union have focused essentially on terrorist organizations, which are perceived by them as international in nature or which are seen as posing a threat to their nationals and interests. Terrorist organizations viewed by them as purely indigenous have been excluded. These multiple yardsticks have been used vis- a-vis China as well as India.”

(Idem.)

11. Note that both the Islamist element of the Uighur independence movement and its more secular Pan-Turkist allies have collaborated with the Dalai Lama.

“7. Uighurs were found fighting with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. We are aware of credible reports that some Uighurs who were trained by al-Qaeda have returned to China. . . .24. The second similarity relates to the external causes of aggravation of the terrorist violence in Xinjiang. Just as in J & K, in Xinjiang too, there are two distinct terrorist/extremist movements- -one resorting to violence on ethnic grounds to assert the Uighur ethnic identity against the perceived Han Chinese domination and the other using religious and pan-Islamic arguments to justify violence for the establishment of an independent Islamic State. While the ethnic separatist elements have been the beneficiaries of sympathy and support from the Dalai Lama’s set-up and the Tibetan diaspora abroad, and the US, Taiwanese and Turkish intelligence agencies, the religious fundamentalist elements have been in receipt of support from the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)-backed jehadi organizations in Pakistan, the Taliban and bin Laden’s International Islamic Front For Jehad Against the USA and Israel.”

(Idem.)

12. According to the Raman paper, the CIA had close connections to Erkin Alptekin, a member of the board of the Dalai Lama foundation and a functionary of the movement to establish Xinjiang province of China as an independent (Muslim) Uighur state—East Turkestan. It should be noted that Alptekin is an operative of the Pan-Turkist movement, which is distinct from the Islamist element in the Uighur independence movement. The Pan-Turkist movement is discussed at length in AFA#’s 14 and 21, available from Spitfire.

“25. In the 1970s and the 1980s, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the USA had built up a network of contacts with the Uighur separatist elements and some of those, who had in the past worked for the Munich-based Radio Liberty of the CIA such as Erkin Alptekin, chairman of the Europe-based Eastern Turkestani Union and a close Uighur associate of the Dalai Lama, are now in the forefront of the ethnic separatist movement. . . .”

(Idem.)

13. In addition to his background with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty—both closely connected to U.S. intelligence—Erkin Alptekin is a founder and key member of the UNPO, about which we will have more to say below. Alptekin is also on the board of the Dalai Lama Foundation.

Excerpt from the list of the board of the Dalai Lama Foundation.

“ERKIN ALPTEKIN is one of the foremost human rights advocates for the Uighur people of Eastern Turkestan, also known as the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China. Mr. Alptekin was employed by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty from 1971 to 1994. He is one of the founders of the Unrepresented Nations and People’s Organization (UNPO), and currently serves as its general secretary.”

14. Another board member of the Dalai Lama Foundation is a member of the UNPO.

“MICHAEL VAN WALT currently serves as Executive President of the Peace Action Council, and Legal Advisor to the Office of H.H. The Dalai Lama. From 1991 to 1998 Dr. Van Walt was General Secretary of UNPO, the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization. Dr. Van Walt holds law degrees from Europe and America, and is currently Adjunct Professor of International Law, Golden Gate University School of Law, San Francisco.”

(Idem.)

15a. With the Dalai Lama and his milieu, we appear to be looking at manifestations of the Underground Reich as a “virtual state”—a state without formal geographical borders. We should also note that Central Asia—the area that is the focal point of the Dalai Lama’s and UNPO’s support for Uighur separatist elements was viewed by geopoliticians as critical for maintaining control of the Earth Island.

Entry for Karl von Habsburg

“The eldest son and heir of the dynasty is Karl (Karl’s website), who lives in Austria and has served in the Austrian army and was a member of the European Parliament, like his father, from 1996-1999. [Emphasis added.] He has worked hard to keep the family in the public limelight, even hosting a popular television game show. He works quietly to change the Austrian laws of 1919 that forbid the Habsburgs from holding any political office and has often been mentioned as a possible Chancellor of the Austrian Republic. At this time he is the Generaldirektor of the UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization). In 1993 Karl married Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza who is well known in European high society.”

15b. Note that, as discussed in FTR #’s 833, 824, Karl Von Habsburg is active in Ukraine today and his father, Otto Von Habsburg, was very close to Jaroslav Stetsko, having served in a prominent position with Stetsko’s European Freedom Council. The genesis of the militant fascism of Galicia (Western Ukraine) lies with the 1848 Spring of Nations implemented by the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

16. Recapping a point of discussion from FTR #842, we further develop the nature of Tibetan Buddhism, certain similarities with Nazi philosophy and occult beliefs, and how this played into the development of the Dalai Lama’s operational links to some truly “interesting” elements.

The Hitler Legacy by Peter Levenda; IBIS Press [HC]; Copyright 2014 by Peter Levenda; ISBN 978-0-89254-210-9; pp. 244-245.

. . . . Both Hitler and the Dalai Lama were secular rulers of their respective countries. Both had been the spiritual rulers of their respective countries. Both had been the spiritual rulers of their peoples, as well. Both revered the swastika as a symbol of their identity. And both were fighting Communism: Hitler against Russia, and the Dalai Lama against China. And just as Nazi officers were incorporated into the US and British intelligence operations against Russia, so were Tibetan political and military leaders incorporated into American intelligence and paramilitary operations against China. The followers of both Hitler and the Dalai Lama were (and are) moved by ecstatic worship of their leaders and dreams of a paradisiacal future. . . .

. . . . This might have been consonant with an esoteric tradition in Tibet, enshrined in the seminal work of Tibetan Buddhism, the Kalachakra Tantra. In this work, mention is made of the Kalki: a kind of God-King that will storm out of Shambhala (the secret, hidden kingdom in the Himalayas made famous in the film Shangri-La) and put to waste all non-Buddhists, in a jihad worthy the most insane fantasies of frustrated terrorists everywhere. The Dalai Lama is known to be fascinated with the machinery of war, as he himself mentioned during the New York Times interview above-referenced.

It would be a stretch to accuse the Tibetans of the same type of war crimes of which the Nazis have been charged. There is no indication of genocide or “ethnic cleansing” as a result of Tibetan policies, for instance. However, if we subtract genocide from the political inclinations of both the Nazis and Tibetans as represented by the Dalai Lama, we are left with the uneasy feeling that there was much they had in common.Both the Nazis and the Tibetan Buddhists represent religions that are non-Abrahamic in nature. The Nazis embraced a kind of neo-paganism as their spiritual resource, and with it a rejection of the ethical and moral ideals of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

It should be noted, however, that the Kalachakra Tantra–which forms the backbone of the type of Buddhism promulgated by the Dalai Lama–includes similar ideas. there is a patent rejection of non-Buddhist religions and the promise of the appearance of the Kalki: an avatar of Vishnu and the last ruler of the Kali Yuga (the dark age in which we presently live). Kalki was associated with Hitler by Miguel Serrano, and by the Indian nationalist leader Subhas Chandra Bose, among others. The Kalki would come out of his mythical kingdom of Shambhala at some point in the future and cleanse the world of non-Buddhists in a major, apocalyptic-style conflagration. This seems a trifle inconsistent with the concept of “mercy.” The Dalai Lama is considered to be an incarnation of Akalovitesvara, the Indian God of Mercy and Compassion; perhaps something is lost in the translation.

We do not see the Dalai Lama sitting down and smiling benignly with Communists. We do see him embracing Nazis. One can imagine that the Sea of Compassion that is the Dalai Lama has managed to bestow mercy on even these unrepentant war criminals and fear-mongers, and perhaps that is the lesson he wishes to teach us; but that is not a lesson he has the moral right to teach. . . .

17. Shifting focus from the Middle East to Asia, the Cold war saw the American adaptation of yet another Third Reich manifestation of “weaponized religion.” Having sent an SS expedition to Tibet in 1938, the Third Reich may well have been exploring a potential outpost to be used for their conquest of the “Earth Island,” in addition to indulging their anthropological fantasies about Tibet being the fount of the “Aryan Race.”

The Hitler Legacy by Peter Levenda; IBIS Press [HC]; Copyright 2014 by Peter Levenda; ISBN 978-0-89254-210-9; pp. 239-240.

One expedition mounted by the SS-Ahnenerbe, and with the specific blessing of Heinrich Himmler, ws the 1938 SS-Tibet Expedition led by Ernst Schafer and including the anthropologist Bruno Beger among the expedition members. While the Dalai Lama was only three years old at the time of this expedition, the Panchen Lama was available to greet the Nazis to the Himalayan kingdom and to provide them with texts (including the 108-volume Tibetan scripture, the Kangjur), animal and plant specimens, and photographic footage to take back with them. In addition, Beger conducted ethnographic and anthropometric research among the Tibetans, measuring their skulls with calipers, for instance. Photographs of this expedition are still extent and examples of it are found in the photographic section of this book, including a famous photo of Beger measuring the skull of a smiling Tibetan maiden. . . .

. . . . by the time the SS-Tibet Expedition arrived back in Germany, the Second World War was just beginning. Bruno Beger–the anthropologist with the calipers–found himself gainfully employed in building an ethnographic museum of the human race, moreover one which would demonstrate the superiority of the Aryan over the Semitic peoples. In order to do this, he needed a representative sampling of human skulls for his collection.

Eighty persons were murdered at Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp to satisfy this requirement.

After the war, Beger was denazified. While he was convicted of the murder of more than eighty individuals for the express purpose of building his skull collection, he never served a day in prison. In fact, he remained a close friend of the Dalai Lama all his life, just as his old SS colleague Heinrich Harrer. . . .

18. After China occupied Tibet, that country’s leader–the Dalai Lama–became yet another ally in the Cold War. The CIA pursued alliance with the Dalai Lama’s forces, apparently employing SS officer Heinrich Harrer as an agent. (Harrer was the Dalai Lama’s tutor and close personal friend.)

The Hitler Legacy by Peter Levenda; IBIS Press [HC]; Copyright 2014 by Peter Levenda; ISBN 978-0-89254-210-9; pp. 236-237.

Thus we have the strange tableau of an SS man and committed Nazi in Lhasa, at the same time that his friend, the Dalai Lama, is officially in contact with the US government concerning the Chinese situation. What did Heinrich Harrer know of these negotiations? How much did the Dalai Lama himself know at this time? Even more to the point, was American intelligence–in the form of the CIA and the State Department–aware of Harrer’s presence in Lhasa and the influence he had over the king?

Harrer would remain a close friend and ally of the Dalai Lama for the rest of his life. As a Nazi and a member of the SS as well as of the SA (the Sturm Abteilung or Storm Troopers), Harrer would have been a devoted anti-communist, and would have seen in the struggles of the Tibetan people against Chinese Communism an echo of his ow country’s fight against the Soviet Union. Harrer, as someone with a demonstrated and intimate knowledge of the landscape, culture, languages, and environment of northern India and Tibet would have been an excellent choice for American intelligence as an asset to run operations against the Chinese. After all, the CIA had hired the Gehlen Organization at the end of World War Two to run ops against the Russians from eastern Europe. Reinhard Gehlen was a Nazi intelligence officer who bartered his way to freedom from prosecution by offering his services (and those of hundreds of his close personal friends in the SS, Gestapo, and SD) as an anti-communist fighter against the Soviets. It would have made perfect sense to hire Nazis who had experience of Asia in the fight against Chinese-style Communism.

In fact, as Thomas Laird reveals: “Only during the past ten years, State Department documents have been declassified that show Harrer may have been involved with several covert operations for the Americans after he left Tibet. . . .”

19a. Note that Paula Dobriansky was in charge of the Tibet desk for George W. Bush.

“Undersecretary for Democracy and Global Affairs”; U.S. Department of State: Archive.

The Office of the Under Secretary for Democracy and Global Affairs, headed by Dr. Paula J. Dobriansky, coordinates U.S. foreign relations on a variety of global issues, including democracy, human rights, and labor; environment, oceans, health and science; population, refugees, and migration; women’s issues; and trafficking in persons and avian and pandemic influenza.

Since her appointment in 2001, Under Secretary Dobriansky has also served concurrently as the Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues. In this capacity, she is the U.S. government’s point person on Tibet policy matters, including: support for dialogue between the Chinese and the Dalai Lama or his representatives; promotion of human rights in Tibet; and efforts to preserve Tibet’s unique cultural, religious and linguistic identity.

19b. Paula Dobriansky is part of the OUN/B milieu. (Her father Lev Dobriansky was chairman of the U.C.C.A., the top OUN/B umbrella organization in the United States.)

“Is the US Backing neo-Nazis in the Ukraine?” by Max Blumenthal [Alternet]; Salon.com; 2/25/2014.

. . . . Many surviving OUN-B members fled to Western Europe and the United States – occasionally with CIA help – where they quietly forged political alliances with right-wing elements. “You have to understand, we are an underground organization. We have spent years quietly penetrating positions of influence,” one member told journalist Russ Bellant, who documented the group’s resurgence in the United States in his 1988 book, “Old Nazis, New Right, and the Republican Party.”In Washington, the OUN-B reconstituted under the banner of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), an umbrella organization comprised of “complete OUN-B fronts,” according to Bellant. By the mid-1980’s, the Reagan administration was honeycombed with UCCA members, with the group’s chairman Lev Dobriansky, serving as ambassador to the Bahamas, and his daughter, Paula, sitting on the National Security Council. Reagan personally welcomed Stetsko, the Banderist leader who oversaw the massacre of 7000 Jews in Lviv, into the White House in 1983.

“Your struggle is our struggle,” Reagan told the former Nazi collaborator. “Your dream is our dream.” . . .
